How can listening to stories about the feminist appropriation of (urban) spaces facilitate the reassessment of our own bodies in space? During a walk guided by binaural sound recordings, listeners encounter a variety of personal stories transcending geographical and linguistic limits. The audiowalk is an ongoing attempt to capture the plurality of subjective experiences and varying degrees of accessibility to space–and to demonstrate them in an embodied way.

We are fem_arc collective, a group of female architects working on intersectional projects. We're all based in Berlin, but we each have different backgrounds and interests. In our projects, we use this multitude of perspectives to question norms and standards in the built environment and in our profession. Through formats such as talks, workshops, and a podcast series we are in search for exit points, entry points and transversal thinking and making beyond our discipline.
